Corner Garden Watercolored Card
Posted on August 13 2021
I love to watercolor! It was my first method of coloring that I fell head over heels for and I'm falling back in love with it again! I used the LDRS Creative Corner Garden Stamp Set and did some shimmer watercolor on this simple card.
Whenever I watercolor I like to do clear heat embossing to raise the edges of my stamped image. It helps me stay within the lines! I stamped both images from the Corner Garden Stamp Set onto LDRS Creative Watercolor Cardstock with Raven Hybrid Ink and heat embossed them with Clear Embossing Powder.
I decided to watercolor with shimmer watercolors, but I encourage you to use what you have on hand! These florals would be gorgeous colored with watercolor pencils, watercolor markers, or regular pan watercolors, too! I think the shimmer watercolors give an extra punch of something special to this simple card.
I colored my images with coordinating colors of paints - pink, blue, and purple - so that the colors wouldn't clash. Once I was done painting I quickly heat set my paints so that they would be completely dry before I die cut the images with the Corner Garden Die Set.
I die cut the Floral Mosaic A2 Coverplate Die from white cardstock and mounted it with foam tape on top of a piece of light blue cardstock. I added my painted flowers on top with foam tape for dimension.
I stamped a sentiment from the Garden Grandeur Slimline Stamp Set and fussy cut it with scissors and added it to the center of the flowers with foam tape to finish the card. Thanks for joining me!
